Location: Palermo Hollywood, is a great location, If you know Buenos Aires you know Palermo is the area you want to be. It is 2 blocks from the Subway, and close to all kinds of restaurants and shops, and best of all, you can walk back to the hotel after you go out. You can dine at the finest in... More

After a couple of weeks of staying in various different hotels and hostels, including much more "highbrow" - and certainly more pricey - hotels like the Sofitel Buenos Aires Arroyo, I have to say that this little place was my favourite and the best value for the money. WiFi wasn't always the best and the pool area was in disarray/non-functional... More

My husband and I took the opportunity to spend the time between Christmas and New Year's in Buenos Aires and stumbled across this hotel. I can't say how lucky we were. Great hotel, comfortable rooms, great breakfast, great location, great staff. Our visit had a couple hiccups, not everything was perfect. Let me tell you, the mark of a good... More

I just spent 3 nights in this nice boutique hotel, all excellent from the location right in the core of the restaurants and night life area of Buenos Aires, the hotel does not provide regular meals service, just B&B but no worries, within walking distance you'll have a wide choice of restaurants, their breakfast is nice as well, perfectly appointed...

Couldn't have been happier with our choice. The best hotel we've ever stayed in. It is quiet, small, modern, beautifully decorated, bedrooms are "enormous" (when comparing to regular hotels' bedrooms)... A good selection of drinks and food for breakfast. Staff is very welcoming and provided us with good tips. Mind the fact that this is a hotel that isn't centrally... More

We enjoyed our stay at Ilum, the staff was helpful, breakfast superior to other experiences in Buenos Aires hotels (this was our 5th hotel in BA i think). The hotel was clean, decor modern, fairly standard style for Palermo hotels it seems. However it felt like a little oasis and very quiet once you got in. I liked the lights... More

We stayed here during our last night in Argentina when we were traveling back from Patagonia. Ilum reminded us quite a bit of the W hotels. The bed was extremely comfortable and it had the nicest bathroom we'd seen during our stay. One thing worth noting was their incredible breakfast. We were blown away when we sat down to have...

Staying in Palermo

Neighborhood Profile
Palermo
Best known as the largest neighborhood in Buenos Aires, Palermo is divided into different quarters, each with its own unique identity. The high-end quarter is Palermo Chico, characterized by magnificent mansions, regal avenues, and exclusive apartment buildings, and home to the Museum of Latin American Art of Buenos Aires (MALBA), a favorite amongst locals. The largest park in the city, the Bosques de Palermo, is Palermo's most famous landmark and a popular destination for nature walks, picnics, rollerblading, and cycling. The scene becomes much trendier in Palermo Soho, a hip area known for its cool cafés and unique design stores, filled with shoppers on weekends; and Palermo Hollywood, renowned for the numerous restaurants, bars and nightclubs, which make it the preferred spot for nights out and special occasions.
